states have passed restrictive voter id laws and several others have tried. in texas, who is voter id law was challenged by the justice department in court today, texas classifies its law as an emergency legislation so that they can rush it through before the election. in texas, a gun permit is a valid voter id. but a university-issued identification is not. hum, wonder who that benefits. the republican argument is that well, everybody has a driver's license or you should have to showed an id to cash a check. why wouldn't you require one to vote? now, that wouldn't be so bad if the list of valid ids weren't so limited in so many of these states. as an example, many investigatorserly people or those who live in cities, people of all economic classes don't have driver's licenses. birth certificates. well 48% of women, those who change their name for marriage don't have a birth certificate with their current lem name in most states, you have to call for a copy of your birth certificate voting rights act declared paying to vote is unconstitutional. some sta
the spot light this week. very high profile test in u.s. district court here in washington regarding texas's new laws which is causing quite a bit of controversy. how important are voter id laws? what types should be in place. here are the numbers to call, democrats 202-737-0001, republicans 202-737-0002 and independents 202-628-0205. if there's a law in your state, please tell us exactly what it does give us your thoughts. here is the front page of this morning's dallas morning news. story by todd gillman. texas and u.s. lay out voter id arguments. todd gillman join us by phone. give us a history of this texas law and how it came to arise in federal court here in washington? guest: people have been trying to get a federal id law in texas going back at least about 15 years and in fact, at one point as the republican backers of the current law that's being challenged. like to point out some liberal democrats at one point actually supported the law as well. it passed the texas house in 2005, 2007 but died in the senate. eventually in the 2011 legislature, there was a rule change that the r
. texas already has. i think the highest rate of uninsured people are in texas. the answer from the left, i don't have an answer. people aren't in the streets protesting a lot of things they should be protesting but this is a situation where these are poor working poor people, they are busy. this is something they haven't gotten yet so it's not exactly being taken away from them. >> i just feel the pendulum has swung so far in the wrong direction in terms of the debate over this. we are talking about the governors that have said they're opting out of this, they have 29% of the total americans without health insurance in this country. the idea that not only are they not apologizing for this decision, but that they feel like they can sort of go out like yosemite sam with guns blazing and say this is equivalent to the titanic or the gestapo is shocking. >> it really is. i think we should say it simply. people are going to die because rick perry wants to run for president again or governors want to pander to the tea party. that's what's going to happen here. you have very poor people who are
. with one person voting present. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? mr. session: madam speaker, by direction of the committee on rules, i call up house resolution 724 and ask for its immediate consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the resolution. the clerk: house calendar number 144, house resolution 724, resolved, that upon adoption of this resolution it shall be in order to consider in the house the bill, h.r. 6079, to repeal the patient protection and affordable care act and health care related provisions in the health care and education reconciliation act of 2010. all points of order against consideration of the bill are waived. the bill shall be considered as read. all points of order against provisions in the bill are waived. the previous question shall be considered as ordered on the bill and any amendment thereto to final passage without intervening motion except one, five hours of debate with 30 minutes equally divided and controlled by the majority leader and minority leader or their respective designees. 60 minutes equa
this race is going to come down to battleground states -- >> and texas is a loss, i agree with you. >> yeah well exactly. be -- no i -- the other thing i'm thinking -- chris i'm going -- because fox news would run that footage 24-7. he is president of the black people, look at him talking to the black people, and the black people are cheering. >> yeah. i don't know although bill press made the point that there is nothing on the president's schedule, which usually means he is taking a trip to some clandestine place. >> oh. >> he may be making a trip overseas or something. so can't do it. romney says the think he did make inroads with black voters -- >> computer says naaa. >> he said i spoke to a number of african american leaders, even ones that are not in sports. >> he is so tall and black, he must be in sport. >> i spoke with a number of african american leaders after the event, and they say a lot of folks don't want to say they are not going to be voting for barack obama, but that are disappointed, at the end of my speech having a standing ovation was genero
that republican governors ought to be looking at that poll and moving on, too. some southern governors like texas' rick perry wants to vote no on obama-care in his own way. but those governors their version is to secede from healthcare, and they're just dancing for the tea party. i know that. here's my prediction. all those governors, they will all opt in eventually. why? opting out is going to end their political careers. let's use rick perry as an example since he's threaten to go mess with texas. under obama-care most of texas' 6 million uninsured are going to get access to healthcare and federal aid. but that rational argument does not appeal to tea partyers like perry, turning down federal money is a badge of honor for them. but texans are still going to pay for healthcare reform. turning down the medicaid expansion means rejecting $76.3 billion in texas alone for five years. so texans are still going to pay billions in federal medicare taxes, but those texans are not going to get any of the benefits. does rick perry really want to campaign on that? does he want to tell texans, yeah you're g
